Annual Group Programs
HARVEST MOON & autumnal equinox
It's time to put your passion project on the front burner; to carve out a dedicated space and time to prioritize your recent creative direction; or to harvest the ideas that have been germinating for your new work even if that means switching gears.
Are you inspired by artists such as Andy Goldsworthy, who embraces the experimental process and adventure in nature, or writers that escape into nature for their muse, inspiration or rejuvenation?
DID YOU KNOW that the harvest moon rises quickly after sunset and illuminates the land with an orange glow to provide the light farmers would need to harvest the final crops of the summer.
Use the light of the full moon to illuminate your creative agenda. This is an unstructured work on your own residency with opportunity to interact and socialize or even discuss each others' work during group breakfast and dinners.
